You don’t have to be a freebie goddess to appreciate a great free font. You also don’t need to be a trained graphic designer to recognize a must-buy-now font. You either love it or you don’t. Fortunately, there are thousands of options right at your fingertips.

Continuing with this week’s theme of unveiling some of the best resources for all your digiscrap needs, this post will share several essential links for font stockpiling.

  • dafont – this granddaddy of all font sites is organized by category
  • ScrapVillage – an abc organized list of free fonts for scrappers
  • Font Squirrel – top quality free fonts for graphic designers

While free is something to swoon for, sometimes a good deal is too hard to pass up. scrapNfonts is having a retirement sale on all Creative Keepsakes fonts. At $1/font or a hugely reduced package prices, there are some super nice fonts I’ve got my eye on.

Are there other sites you love? Whose fonts are worth busting out the PayPal account?

    What’s the font you have up there? I like that one!
    I love ScrapNFonts, that’s where I buy most of my purchased fonts. They have a sister site called “LetteringDelights” and I buy some fonts and dingbats there occasionally. I love to go to Smashing Magazine for inspiration and free fonts.
